Florida State University and Manatee County's Southeast High School were in overtime, debating whether or not the high school should have to give up the logos, Chief Osceola and the spear, they've been using for the past three decades.
After the Collegiate Licensing Company issued a ceases and desist order back in August- The two teams worked toward a royalty-free agreement and a promise to not disrespect the logo.
Margi Nanny, Spokesperson from Manatee County Public Schools says, "We feel very positive about it. We feel like it's a win-win situation. We got what we wanted and FSU got what they wanted to get and basically we're very pleased."
The royalty-free agreement will automatically renew every five years- unless the Seminoles logo is abused in anyway such as used to promote alcohol or tobacco or other tarnishing factors.
